Group and community activities help your loved one develop the social and physical skills leading to their independence and empowerment.
Incompass supports individuals as they tackle their daily challenges and advocate for themselves on their way to self-empowerment. We have day programs in our facilities located in Chelmsford and Lawrence. Each of our day programs is organizing virtual activities which can be accessed by clicking here.
Path to Independence
Fitness, music and art activities contribute to physical skills building and self esteem. Social events and community outings encourage conversations and contribute to health and wellbeing.
Participating in the community fosters socialization, awareness and collaboration with others — so everybody has a better quality of life and everybody benefits.
The Incompass direct care team is knowledgeable about and supports the needs of each individual, providing extra support, attention and more specialized care, as needed.

Frequently Asked Questions
Whom do you serve?
Incompass supports adults, age 22 and older, with autism spectrum disorder and/or intellectual and developmental disabilities.
What program activities do you offer?
Exercise and movement, art, music, cooking and nutrition, and social skills building — experiences and daily opportunities to work on goals and concentrate on activities of interest, both at the Incompass facilities and within the community.
How is your programming organized?
Every day is different. The Incompass staff designs days centered on fitness, arts and crafts, money management, computer skills and internet safety, singing, dancing, music therapy, reading and writing skills, menu planning, sensory integration, nutrition, community awareness, and safety. Self-advocacy is at the center of every choice.
How do you support health goals?
The Incompass nursing staff, skilled RNs and LPNs, provide the variety of nursing supports critical to the care of your loved one. Our nurses are attuned to how adults with disabilities develop many of the same health problems as the general population, and how they also develop unique medical problems due to their congenital or acquired conditions and the medications they take to treat those conditions.
Our staff knows every individual entrusted to our care and observes for subtle and significant changes in abilities and behaviors.
Nurses work alongside occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech therapists and the direct-care staff to ensure your loved one’s needs are met.
Do you provide occupational, physical and speech therapies?
Our consultants provide initial assessments and train the staff to implement recommended exercises and activities. They also conduct basic assessments if the staff notices a change in a person’s basic health.
What are some of the activities in the community?
Our direct-care staff engages individuals to count their money during purchases at retail and grocery stores, observe where the path money takes at the bank, understand what animals eat and what is grown at local farms, and ask the cost of stamps and where their mail goes at the post office. Community and backyard gardening opens up their world to vegetable, nutrition and health — to touch and feel and smell. Individuals attend horseback riding therapy to tone their muscles and develop their balance. They learn exercise is fun during movement classes with a group of friends, and they discover their voices and acting chops at local performance and theater programs. The direct-care staff encourages individuals to observe the variety of jobs people have at these venues, to lay the foundation for socializing and becoming more involved in their community.
Do you provide transportation?
We will work with you to make sure your son or daughter can get to our program or we will identify resources for you.
What case coordination supports do you offer?
Incompass Case Coordination professionals are vital participants who empower your sons and daughters, who guide them through self advocacy to discover their own capabilities and independence. Coordinators are conduits of information, maintaining strong lines of communication among you and the Incompass direct-care and nursing staffs, your service coordinators and residential providers. Case coordinators practice advocacy and assist both you and your loved one in advocacy as you collaboratively design individualized support plans.
